I have issues with severe pain in my right hand/wrist/arm when I play clarinet or soprano saxophone. I needed something to take the weight off and this does the job for the clarinet and the soprano saxophone. I have a Tru Tone Buescher Soprano, no strap ring. I had considered adding a ring (soldering a ring on) but decided not to, because it could possibly lower the value of the horn. This strap and leather tag works really well, because it slips over the thumb hook, and your thumb holds it in place, so you don't worry about slippage. I added a thumb hook cushion as well to keep it on there. All works great. Also, the strap is long enough, that I still get the correct position with my soprano saxophone. It's a great price for a nice alternative.

I tried to order the product in the picture threw separate times and each time I was assured that THAT isn't the product I would receive. I use a neck strap almost daily so I wanted exactly what I wanted. Each time I ordered I received a different neck strap; different adjustment mechanism, different neck support. Not once was it the neck strap in the photo. They need to change their advertising.

Great for my autoimmune wrist issues.

Comments about BGC 20E Clarinet Support Strap:

I have been having issues with wrist pain and swelling during extended play sessions due to autoimmune issues recently and this strap has really been a lifesaver. It is very easy to use and adjust, even while playing, and is lightweight and comfortable. I no longer have the same wrist issues during longer rehearsals.
The leather adapter provided worked great with the stock thumbrest on my Yamaha YCL-34. Would definitely recommend to someone looking to take some weight off their right thumb and wrist.

Strap is made for children

By 

from St. Louis, MO

Verified Buyer

Comments about BGC 20E Clarinet Support Strap:

Strap is well made but it is way too small for an adult to use. The elastic chord is simply too short and forces the clarinet up into your mouth. There has to be a way to produce a longer chord.

Yes, I would buy this item again.

By 

from Gettysburg, PA

Verified Buyer

Comments about BGC 20E Clarinet Support Strap:

This clarinet neck strap supports the clarinet so I can position my right hand better for key control. In so doing, prevents accidentally touching the trill key. Application of the strap leather to the thumb rest was easy and secure. I also employ a thumb rest pad that locks the leather attachment point to the thumb rest.

    COULDN'T BE PLAYING WITHOUT IT!

    Comments about BGC 20E Clarinet Support Strap:

    You must use this accessory if you are older, your fingers change due to arthritic joints and your thumb hand cramps.

    I would not be playing without it!

        Comments about BGC 20E Clarinet Support Strap:

        great thumb and wrist support. I bought two of these for my daughters, one of whom plays oboe, and the other one - clarinet. It seems to be of a perfect use for both, beginners and professionals. My older daughter has been using it for a few years, and it still is in a great condition. It might be a little hard for a beginner to get used to it, but I'm sure it's worth of it.
